BILL Etheridge wants Nigel Farage back leading Ukip, fearing it is on the brink of becoming “the zombie party”.

The MEP for the West Midlands said he would roll out the red carpet for the return of the two-time leader, as he himself pulled out of the current leadership race.

He told Express.co.uk: “I would lay down a red carpet and I would escort him along it and I would open the doors and say thank God you’re back.”

The 47-year-old described Nigel Farage as “a phenomenal leader and the greatest politician of his generation”.

He added: “There’s no question that without Nigel Farage we would not have got to the position we got to and since he stopped being leader the shambles has ensued. Which shows just how effective he was.

“His biggest failure was that he didn’t effectively promote and groom a successor to preserve his legacy. That was a failure on his behalf. But if you look at the plus sides of his career, we can forgive him.”

Mr Etheridge yesterday officially announced he was withdrawing his candidacy as the divided party gears up for an election battle.

While he firmly backed Mr Farage to take on the role for a third time, he was far less supportive of some elements within the right-wing party.
